H. ;'"Warffert gives the results of some in'". litigations he has made into the •; dairy business while visiting in Algo- "tia. Sis flattering report of what vdaifying has done here and his esti* ', ttate of what it will do in Dakota is of ' interest to our readers: In this coun- ' ty there are now fourteen creameries in ' successful operation on the co-operative plan. None of these has been established much more than six years, but this time has been sufficient to set at rest all question of doubt regarding the feasibility of this plan of operation, and to satisfy the patrons that there is no ' industry to which they can turn with the same certainty of success. Previous to the establishment of this enterprise on the co-operative plan, several attempts hud been made on the plan of collecting the cream by ''skimmers," bringing it to some central point, where a factory was built, and cream thus gathered was converted into butler. But through incompetency of workmen and bad management of owners of factories, failure to a greater or less extent had been the result, and the farmers who furnished the " raw material" were invariably the losers. The co-operative plan has given the most entire satisfaction, and farmers no longer complain of "the dishonesty" or inefficiency of owners of creameries. THE HURT CREAMERY. The Burt creamery has been in suc- cuessful operation a little more than five years, and is regarded as a fair average of the 14. From Jan. 1, 1893, to Dec. 31, a period of 12 months, 2,340,933 pounds of milk was handled. The Avorks were unavoidably stopped during a part of May, but for which the amount would have reached 2,500,000 pounds. From this milk the cream is separated by ingeniously contrived machine which revolves with a velocity of 7,500 revolutions per minute, representing a distance traveled by the outer rim of the cylinder, equal to Qve miles per minute. This cream yielded 102,350 pounds of butter, an average of over four pounds of butter for each 100 pounds of milk. After payment of all expenses there remained to be divided among the patrons the sum of $20,506.76. The average price paid for milk was 87-} cents per 100 pounds, the highest price, §1.20, being paid in January, and the lowest, 65 cents, in May. The month of June gave the largest output of butter, 14,103 pounds. The largest amount of butter to the 100 pounds of milk was 41 pounds in July. The highest cost of making butter was 5J cents per pound in January, and the least was 2Jr cents in July. The proprietors of the Burtcreamery estimate the quantity of milk for 1S94 to exceed 3,000,000 pounds, notwithstanding the season is conceded to be the dryest ever known in this part of the state. THE NEW IRVINGTON CREAMERY. Today I visited the Irvington creamery, which has been in operation only two months, and up to date has had only 53 patrons. With this limited number of patrons and only one man to do all the work, the receipts of milk were for July, 155,000 pounds, which averaged four pounds of butter for each 100 pounds of milk. Through June and July the scale of prices for milk was 50 cents per 100 pounds. The price of butter has ranged lower this season than at any time in 30 years, if we except a portion of the year 1884. The milk yield this season is very much below the average, owing to the excessive drouth. Secretary Z. C. Andruss informed me that the machinery and the one buttermaker might easily have handled double the amount of milk and made double the amount of butter if the milk could have been obtained. Butter at this creamery readily commands 20 cents per p_ound, and this is about the ruling price at all of the fourteen creameries in Kossuth county. Thoroughly skilled b.uttermakers can be had for $65 per month, WHAT DAIRYING HAS DONE. And now a few facts concerning the results of this enterprise, and its direct effect upon the men who own the source of this wealth, may not be inappropriate, As has already been the case in all countries where wheat rais- ipg has been made a specialty, many farmers were loaded down with debts incurred in the purchase of farm machinery and for hired labor, and from whiob there seemed no avenue of escape. Many bad become utterly discouraged and were on the point of giving up in , ftispair; but on the showing of some of the, early cooperative creameries, resolved on making one more attempt to free themselves from their burdens of debt. They turned all available re^ sources into dairy stock, adding thereto as fast as the proceeds could be spared . fop that purpose. Today the majority Of those men are out of debt and have a gp,o4 bank account to tneir credit. Can any better evidence of the value of an investment in an enterprise of this character be asked for? Statistics might be multiplied, all giving similar ! peewits, . .

This estimate is based upofl established facts and figures. It has long since pissed beyond the conditions of experiment, having beeh thoroughly tested in all the stock-growing states (except a few of the states bordering bit the great Rocky range, and with about the same results in all cases. It Is iny fixed purpose to agitate this matter until a few enterprising persons with a little capital are induced to take hold of it in real earnest. J. H. W. ME, OAnriEw r ABM, if, 1J. Jones Writes EntertnlhthKly of its Fine Herd of ShbrtMiorns aiid Other Attractions. To the Editor; Last Thursday even* ing the writer accepted an invitation to visit "Oak View," and as we drove along McGregor avenue, leading up to this beautiful suburban home, we could not but note the contrast between the dried-up fields and pastures of southern and central Iowa and the green fields on either side of us; the large stalks of corn heavily loaded down with ears — laughing ears — of golden corn, that made the owner smile as we called his attention to them. After dining with our host and his amiable and entertaining wife we visited the village of out-buildings so systematically arranged for the comfort of their occupants, as well as convenience in caring for them. As we came from the house we were confronted with that beautiful picture calling to mind our own farm life, and that wonderful poem of unknown authorship, " When the Cows Come Home." We quote a verse only: " Through violet air we see the town, And the summer sun a-sllding down, And the maple In the hazel glade Throws dow n the path a longer shade, And the hills are growing brown, To-rlng, to-rang, to-rlngle-rlngle, By threes,- by fours, and single, The cows come slowly home. " Let down the bars, let In the train Of long-gone songs, and flowers, and rain, For dear old times come back again When the cows come home." As the cows walked leisurely along, with a contented air, groaning under the burden of well-filled stomachs, and took their places in the cleanly stalls prepared for them, the writer thought that if every city could have its milk supply from such well-kept herds and barns there would be small need for the "milk inspector." The next thing in order was a, visit to the lot containing a bunch of magnificent short-horn heifers, recently purchased by Mi 1 . Lund from the celebrated herd of Gov. Carpenter at Fort Dodge. And as we looked at these nice young things, quietly feeding in pasture, with their broad backs and melon coats, our thoughts went back to the time some eighteen years ago when we were laying the foundation for a herd of shorthorns in Kossuth county. Without experience and relying on our own judgment — the thought would force itself upon us that possibly we had made a mistake in the breed; but every year's experience taught us that no mistake had been made. Since that time we have seen the Holstein, the Hereford, and the Jersey brought in with a flourish and " sounding of trumpets." These have all quietly passed away, while the short-horn remains " the survival of the fittest." In this country of diversified farming and cheap feeds a general purpose breed of cattle is demanded. The short-horn responds liberally at the pail and churn, and when it comes to beef — the ultimate end of all cattle- kind — they are preeminently the best and have no successful riyal. This move on the part of Mr. Lund is not a hasty one. He now has the largest dairy in the county, and has fed to a finish more good steers than any other man in northern Iowa. This experience, coupled with his many visits to the stock yards of Chicago, the greatest cattle market in the world, has led him up to the selection of this grand breed of cattle. It is Mr. Lund's purpose to place at the head of this young herd the best sire he can buy, and it will not be long before the cattle stalls of the agricultural society will again be graced with a fine string of short-horns, so much admired by all, from both city and country; and the short-horn herd of Oak View will be heard from by the farmers and breeders of Kossuth and adjoining counties. We congratulate Mr. Lund upon this valuable addition to the already magnificent surroundings of Oak View. J, B. JONES. Cheap Excursions. On Sept. 11 and 25 and Oct. 9, 1894, the Northwestern line will sell home- seekers' excursion tickets to points in northwestern Iowa, western Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Manitoba, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, and Montana at exceedingly low rates for the round trip. These tickets will be good for return passage within twenty days of the day of sale, and will allow stop-over privileges on going trip in territory to which tickets are sold, For tickets and full information apply to agents Chicago & Northwestern railway.—23t4 Tile Drainage and Drouth, The Manson Journal says: Some 27 years ago, or to be more explicit, in the summer of 1807, there was not a foot of tile drain in the northwest, and probably not in Iowa, That spring every pond and slough was full and The Best Remedy for STOMACH, Bowel Complaints AVER'S PILLS Received ovef, yet old settlers declare that there was net a drop of rain f rdm the let of June until in September. We cahnot vouch for this, but we do know that evert' slough in the country went dry, and Twin Lakes were so low that several people waded across them. Tile drainage did not cause that drouth and probably not the last one. Lunch Counrer. A. EC. Allen has opened a lunch counter east of the court house, in the Chrischilles building.
